When they arrived, I wasn't sure if my new bananas would even survive...now, I've had to repot and move one out of the greenhouse (it's since lost a fair bit of its color because it's not full sun there, but still looks good) and the others will soon follow

The yard itself has also begun offering a plethora of edible things, from 6 pounds of chokecherries that I turned into syrup
Chokecherries by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
To rosehips (which I found out, if you boil to make tea and then do not sweeten...tastes like tomato)
Rosa rugosa by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr

May or may not have killed my Sikkim cucumber in my attempt to repot it...and might be at risk with this weirdo too:
Trichosanthes cucumerina by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
Hoping both survive though because I desperately want fruits

Surprise Freesia blooms that I didn't realize were developing. Seeds now on the way.

Gotta restart this one (again) because it rotted (it needs to be outside in dry soil, no question), but got a flower at least before it collapsed
